The Alliance uses a Medication Formulary to provide access to quality and clinically effective medications. Prescribers may submit a  Prescription Drug Prior Authorization (PA) Request Form to request medication that are not on the Alliance Medication Formulary that requires a prior authorization (PA).

Prescribers must use the  Prescription Drug PA Request Form when submitting a request for review. The medications that require PA are subject to change.

PA requests encourages the appropriate and efficient use of medications by allowing coverage only when certain conditions are met.

The PA process is based upon current medical findings, FDA-approved manufacturer labeling information, and recommendations by the Alliance P&T Committee. The Alliance will review your request and make a decision within one (1) business day.
